Mark Hurt on Homeland Security

 

 


Increase high tech weapons

Hurt would like to see targeted and strategic increased spending on technologically advanced military weapons systems, and believes issues such as border security on both northern and southern borders should include the expansion of the use of sensors and satellite technologies, now in use in Israel, which can better defend those areas from tunnels and provide surveillance for meandering rivers which flow miles in and miles from the fluid U.S. border.

Could support transgender military ban

About Trump's executive order banning transgender people from the military, Hurt said he will support the ban if Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and others determine the presence of transgender military troops "negatively impacts our military preparedness, our military readiness." "I have no problem with the recommendation" to ban transgender military members, added Hurt, noting that he originally supported the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy when Bill Clinton was president.

Strategic increased spending on military weapons systems

Hurt spoke strongly about the need for more active duty military personnel, a better focus and enhanced resources for reservists and National Guardsmen, and unwavering support for veterans who have served the United States.

Work with countries like Russia & comprehensively fight ISIS

Hurt, who earned a Master Degree focused on international relations from Baylor University, noted that America must maintain peace through strength & work with countries like Russia, in a more comprehensive and targeted plan to fight against terrorism.

He envisions our having a unique opportunity to work with such countries to eliminate ISIS in the Middle East and Northern Africa. Hurt encourages renegotiation of the Iranian Nuclear Agreement that is not a treaty under US or international law.
